Ascot is back: Royal Family and social set out in force at the races
There’s nothing quite like a day at the races – and it doesn’t come much grander than Royal Ascot, which kicks off today. An annual highlight of the summer social calendar, Ascot is beloved by royalty and rock stars alike, frequented by everyone from Her Majesty The Queen to Sir Rod Stewart. Like so many historic events, last year’s Ascot was forced to take place behind closed doors on account of the pandemic. This year, however, spectators have been welcomed back to the famed racecourse in person, albeit in reduced numbers and with careful social distancing measures in place. From the Countess of Wessex in a chic blush-coloured ensemble to Prince Charles in a dapper grey morning suit, see all the most exciting attendees at this year’s event below.
